Jay-Z Supports Gay Marriage

Jay-Z Throws Support to Gay Marriage

Jay-Z echoed President Obama's support of gay marriage in a new interview with CNN, saying it's "no different than discriminating against blacks. It's discrimination plain and simple." The rapper has a live-and-let-live attitude on the subject, explaining: "What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That's their business." While Obama has one of hip-hop's biggest names on his side, reports say that his new position on same-sex marriage is leaving some black churches conflicted. While some pastors kept quiet and a minority expressed support for the president's position at last Sunday's services, others specifically reaffirmed their opposition to gay marriage. But as Jay said on the topic of black voters: "It's really not about votes. It's about people." Watch the interview now.
